Georges, a 40-year-old man who’s just been dumped by his wife, travels to a mountain village to buy a $9,000 western-style suede fringed jacket from an elderly man living in the Alps. The man throws an old camcorder into the deal. This prompts Georges to tell the locals that he’s in town to work on a film. Denise, a local bartender and amateur editor, decides to join Georges as he makes his mockumentary. Georges is so fascinated by the jacket that he wants to be the last human on Earth to wear a coat. He gets others on board for his film, but first they have to swear that they will never wear jackets anymore and dispose of theirs, in exchange for a sum of money. Thinking she’s been hired as the film’s editor, Denise provides him with the necessary funds.
